Burn II
8

Finished editing last night's photos. I was invited to photograph my friend Pavel's performance with his friends. Editing these is challenging, I keep running out of dynamic range; I could really use more light.

Pavel in the middle, Betya on the left and Marina on the right.

I have no idea how he does it without getting burned, but Pavel dances blindfolded with rope torches.

Betya in sword action.

I don't know what this contraption is called, but Pavel swings it at a speed requiring at least 1/200 (and ideally 1/320) to freeze the action.

I've seen this done once before, but it is always immensely spectacular - a cloud of cinders rising 20 ft up into the air. I was engulfed by it while shooting - camera and lens seem to be fine

Burning man.

Marina in action.

Show done, fires out.
